Perfect casting of actors/actresses

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Having just finished rewatching the complete Sharpe series on DVD I realised that Sean Bean was perhaps the perfect choice to take the role of Richard Sharpe. (Based on my perception of the character from the books.)

    This led me to thinking of other actors/actresses who seemed perfect for the roles in which they were cast.

    My two pennies worth:
    Sean Bean - Richard Sharpe
    Jeremy Brett - Sherlock Holmes

    Gentlemen and ladies who would be your picks if any?

    Michelle Thorne - Backdoor sluts 7.
  3. The Nazi bloke in 'Inglorios Basterds'
  4. Kiefer Sutherland-Jack Bauer
  5. Having just googled her for 'information' purposes would have to agree :D

    How about Edward Fox as Lt Gen Sir Brian Horrocks in A Bridge Too Far - as a personal friend he felt it to get his performance spot on.
  6. Juergen Prochnow - the captain in Das Boot.
  7. That bird Debbie in "whatsername does Dallas". Does she count?
  8. Wilfed Bramble.........Albert Steptoe.

    Hang on, I don't think I've got the hang of this thread yet.

    While I think he performed brilliantly in this, I'm not sure I would call casting a teetotalling African in the role of a raging alcoholic poncy student 'perfect.' :D

    ''I can assure you officer I've only had a few ales.''
  10. Fry and Laurie as Jeeves and Wooster.
  11. Atkinson - Black Adder
    Fry -Melchett
    Lawrie - George
  12. spot on. if i read the books now, they are how I picture them.
  13. Good call, very much as you picture them from the books, Laurie especially.
  14. Bruno Ganz as Hitler in "Downfall". A chilling performance, particularly in "rant" mode.
  15. im spartacus!!!!
